    Useful info for when the subject of (Evil) Castle Doctrine comes up:

    http://pjmedia.com/blog/politicized...s-not-increase-violent-crime/?singlepage=true

    It continues with a fair bit of detail and some colorful charts.

    This probably isn't the most exciting discussion starter in forum history, but it is informative.

    The purpose of castle laws isn't to stop crime or prevent crime its to stop the relatives of murderous thugs from suing the victim of their relative...

    In states where there is no castle doctrine a burgler that breaks a window gaining entry cuts himself on the glass can sue the home owner for damages.

    The "Left" is stinging from the defeat of Obama's gun control legislation. They have had continued losses regarding gun control in Washington D.C. They are now mounting a national movement to change state and local laws regarding firearms.
    Bloomberg has started an Anti-Gun organization with 9 million in seed money. The attack on concealed carry is the new target. :(

    Hopefully, the "seed money" will end up like the rest of this tripe - "seeds of disaster."

    One thing for sure, righteous self defense killings reduce recidivism: The late scumbag will never commit another violent crime.

    Considering a side benefit of more guns and more CCWs has been a drop in violent crime, I don't see how a study could conclude that it produces more homicides. Of course my definition of homicide does not include someone who has broken a law and is threatening law abiding citizens who are where they have a legal right to be.

    Maybe that should be called assisted suicide?

    These people are not out to be your friend, they are out to harm you or your family. Why would you call that homicide?

    I also like what Alsaqr typed!

    Our founding fathers left us a 3 tiered governmental system of check and balance. Legislative, Judicial and Executive. We have since allowed a 4 th non elected not responsible tier. We now have Bureaus that mandate rules which are not constitutional.
    The IRS, EPA,DEA,BATFE etc simply dictate rules which do not originate thru the elective process. Gun Control is being planned thru the CDC Center for Disease Control. The CDC will determine gun deaths are a national epidemic and will create rules to restrict firearms ownership. :(

    One thing about Castle Doctrine hat very few people realize or mention, is that it is a strengthening of Title Law. Whether you own your house or rent, you are supposed to have ALL the rights to your home, as well as a right to "Quiet Enjoyment." The idea that you have to retreat out of your own property because some felony-committing idiot decides to target you is ludicrous. This would be like Shell Oil setting up a drilling Derrick in your back yard wiout your permission and the government telling you they were allowed because it was for the public good.

    The Castle Doctrine reaffirms the owner's absolute right to quiet enjoyment and the idea that the owner controls ALL of his property and his rights. While retreating from an intruder may allow the criminal to toss the house without interference or threat to his person, the law should allow the homeowner reasonable execution of his rights against trespassers.

    Castle Doctrine even helps the anti-gunners. When an anti-gunner is awakened by a family member being raped and picks up a 9 iron and beats the attacker, the law will not prosecute him because he didn't step into the backyard and wait for police while the atrocities continued inside. Many liberals rationalize these laws, but when personally being victimized, their similarity to Charles Bronson or Clint Eastwood is amazing!

    Or possibly "Suicide by homeowner?"

    They consider it homicide because it was "accomplished" with one of those evil guns. I don't know what they would say if a bat, golf club or any other weapon was used.

    Homicide is simply the killing of one human by another. Blame and/or justification are separate matters that should not be implied by the use of the word. For instance: All murders are homicides, but all homicides are not murders.

    This kind of left wing BS is surprising coming out of Aggieland. Texas A&M is a very conservative school. I see a couple of vacancies in the Economics department coming soon,

    Black Leaders the pawns of the Leftest Democrats is turning this into a gun control debate. Obama wasted no time in calling for laws regarding firearms ownership. The NRA is being blamed by Black spokes person Tavis Smiley. :(

    I'm getting totally fed up with all the bogus angles the Libs are coming up with to attack our basic liberties. Castle Doctrine is a basic right to protect one's home that goes back millennia. :mad:
